New ball joint & suspension arm needed 2003 Honda Civic Sign In

Hello, I've just had a quote for £250 for replacing the ball joint and lower suspension wishbone arm on my Honda Civic 1.4 year 2003. Just wondering if this is a fair price to pay or not? I really have no idea about these things and just moved to a new area so it's hard to know which garages you can trust! Also how urgent the repair is - it does sound pretty clunky at the moment.

Thank you so much!

If a ball joint separates, that will cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

Not sure on the prices where you live, but have you gotten some other quotes from other shops in the area? If you have any neighbors and friends that live in that area, ask them where they take their vehicles for service.

Just about the money exchange =

US Dollar1 USD = 0.800357 GBPBritish Pound1 GBP = 1.24944 USD
************************That's today's rate. Parts showed about 150USD cost + your markup at a garage (they get a higher price for selling parts to you) + any VAT tx. and labor. It needs an alignment too after this would be about 80USD so think your quote is a good price going by a look up here and they don't sell the exact Civic here with that engine so may all be different?
As Discretesignals just suggested if this is really needed and might be get other quotes locally. I can't get figures on what garages (repair shops) charge in your area,

If that price is parts and labor it seems like a very good price. You're buying and arm and everything.
